Best Answer

The speed of a tennis ball can be determined by who is hitting it. An amateur or young child is not going to hit the ball as fast as a professional. At the professional level the ball can travel over one hundred miles an hour.

Will a wet tennis ball travel faster than a dry tennis ball?

It depends. If a tennis balls are hit with the same amount of force, then the dry tennis ball will travel faster and farther. However, if the two tennis balls begin traveling at the same speed, then the dry tennis ball will slow down more rapidly than the wet tennis ball. The reason is the added mass of water. It would take more force to make the wet tennis ball fly as fast as the dry, but the added mass also requires more force to slow down the wet ball.

Why does a rocket have to go fast to put a satellite into orbit?

A rocket that is leaving the earth needs to travel at high speed to leave the earths gravity. The speed needed is approx 40,000km/h to break free from earths gravitational pull. An easy way to imagine this is if you pick up a tennis ball and throw it as fast as you can (eg, 90km/h) the tennis ball will travel up into the sky then will be pulled back down to the earth. Now you can throw the tennis ball at 20,000km/h. The ball would travel approx half way around the globe before being pulled back down to the earth. Now imagine you can throw the ball at 40,000km/h. The ball would leave the earth then travel around the earth in orbit.
